Tonight Mercury and Venus were visible just after sunset. Since they are both nearer to the Sun than we are, they display phases (like mini Moons!) Venus has a dense, almost opaque atmosphere, so it's incredibly reflective: impossible to miss! Mercury is so close to the Sun that it's rare to be able to catch a glimpse - it has to be at one or other extremes of its path around the Sun.
Also tonight, a beautiful full Moon: this ((in keeping with modern journalistic traditions!) has a name - the Snow Moon!
